Application ID: 6-4058-00003/00373
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility

Project Description:
This Department has received a request to issue a permit and has drafted an Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air State Facility Permit, at the facility located at Alcoa Massena Operations, West Plan, Massena, St. Lawrence County, New York 13662.  

This project involves replacing the old afterburner on chip dryer number 1 with a new after-
burner.  The new afterburner will be slightly larger, but will perform slightly more efficiently.  There will be a small increase in emissions of NOx, SO2, PM-10, and particulate.  There will, however, be a marked decrease in Carbon Monoxide and THC (and VOC) emissions.  This ASF permit has labeled the emission unit as CHPDRY.  The Title V modification will then return the label to C-00001 for uniformity within the permit.  The project is not considered major under Title V requirements.

The draft permit with conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYSDEC office in Watertown, New York.
